The wood-backed version of the Moto X still lacks a release date, but Twitter phone-leaker evleaks says it is "still coming." The leaker has also posted the price and options for the exclusive Moto X.

The second phase of Motorola’s Moto X make-up sale ended on Monday, with the $499 smartphone going for as low as $349 on the Moto Maker website. Motorola offered a make-up sale on Monday and Wednesday, Dec. 4, after a Cyber Monday sale went awry.

While the Moto X models sold on Monday were lacking in the wood-backed variety, Twitter leaker evleaks confirmed that the Moto X would soon be sporting a timber-covered rear shell. Evleaks tweeted a previously unseen photo of the smartphones to a follower that asked if the Moto X was still shipping with wood backs.

"THEY ARE STILL COMING," evleaks tweeted, including a photo that showcased two of the four new wood backs for the Moto X. The photo includes Verizon Wireless branding on the Moto X, leaving it up to question whether the wood-back would be an exclusive for customers of the provider.

Choosing to put a wood back on a Moto X will add $50 to the smartphone’s price. Options will include ebony, rosewood, bamboo and teak, and are confirmed for the Verizon Wireless network, as the photos show a Verizon logo on the Moto X.

Motorola CEO Dennis Woodside recently said that Moto X wood backs would see a release date sometime soon, in a Google+ Hangout with YouTube tech reviewer Marques Brownlee. Woodside refused to give an exact release date for the Moto X wood rear shell.
